My girl and I enjoyed our family visit to the Universal Orlando Resort so much last year, that we went back for more a few weeks ago during our trip to Florida. We´re so thankful we got to stay at the Hard Rock Hotel since Camila´s favorite water slide is there and it was a tough time getting her out of the pool! We were able to convince her by reminding her how much fun she had at Dr. Seuss´Landing at Islands of Adventures and at the Curious George water play area in Universal Studios. Not only that, but we got to check out the brand new Blue Man Group show and had even more of a blast this time.
What we didn´t get to do because we were there just a week too early is to check out the two brand new entertainment experiences Universal Orlando Resort just launched - Universal’s Superstar Parade and Universal’s Cinematic Spectacular.
It’s great to see the look on our niños faces when they get to meet their favorite animated characters in person, and they get to do just that when they visit Universal. The parade happens daily and features Dora, Diego, Boots and Baby Jaguar, Spongebob and his Bikini Bottom friends, and characters from HOP and Despicable Me! During the day guests get to meet and take pictures will all the before mentioned characters.
We also missed out on getting to experience Universal’s Cinematic Spectacular – 100 Years of Movie Memories. This all new lagoon show, also at Universal Studios, features a collection of the best moments from iconic Universal pictures movies, which are all projected onto huge waterfall screens in an awe-inspiring show.
Check out the video below and get a little peek at these new additions:
